Dark Sky Discovery Night – Landscapes for Life: Outstanding Week

- May 2nd, 2019

September 21, 2015 @ 8:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Beacon Fell Country Park
Bowland Visitors Centre, Forest of Bowland, Preston
United Kingdom

Come and experience an unforgettable night under the stars in the Forest of Bowland!
We will be your guide taking you on an incredible journey through the constellations and along the Milky Way, while also showing you how to find all sorts of heavenly objects for yourself. There will also be powerful telescopes for you to gaze through, all operated by experienced amateur astronomers, who will attempt to answer your questions on life, the universe and everything!
We’ll tell you more about our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and show startling images and videos of the objects we hope to see when we go outside, weather permitting. But even if the weather does not co-operate we’ll still have colourful talks, videos and hands on help with telescopes, together with friendly advice on how to get started in this wonderful hobby.
Wrap up warm, bring binoculars, if you have them, and also a torch.
Cost: £5
